About Phil

I've been playing guitar for over 20 years and teaching since 2008. Along with teaching, I've also been pursuing music recording, an endeavor which has produced two full-length albums and one that is still in progress that should be released sometime in 2020.

*** Lesson Details ***
When teaching guitar or any other instrument, I typically use a method book to guide the lessons. In addition to the lesson book, which will cover music-reading, we'll learn scales, chords and strum patterns, among other things. I try to tailor each lesson according to the student's skill level and individual musical interests.

After learning the basics, we can learn different styles of music, including rock, blues, jazz, classical, etc. I look forward to exploring these genres with you!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my own instrument. I would ex

pect my student to have or to rent his/her own instrument.

Phil Hodges is a phenomenal and inspiring guitar teacher. Over the past year of guitar lessons with Phil, my daughter's playing ability has rapidly advanced and she is so enthusiastic about practicing. Guitar lessons with Phil is a highlight of her week!

About Alison

Thank you for visiting my profile!

As a professional musician, I have played in various ensembles including orchestras, opera companies, wind ensembles, chamber groups, musicals and more. The Brooklyn Conservatory Community Orchestra (BCCO), presenting 3-5 concerts a year, has been my orchestral home since 2013 and I have had the privilege of playing principal oboe with them all throughout.

As a music educator I have years of experience teaching privately and in classrooms, for individuals and groups. I craft lessons to the needs and interests of each student, to ensure they are getting the most out of our time together. Many of my students enjoy, for example, video game and TV show music - so, these pieces are some of the repertoire we'll work on together. My goals as a teacher are to instill proper playing technique, guide how to

shape the music, establish good practice habits, and above all find ways to connect students with the music they're studying. At the end of the day, we play music because it's fun!

Degrees:
Master's in Music Performance, NYU
Bachelor's in Music Education, The College of New Jersey

*** Equipment ***
Students should own/rent their instrument, assigned methods book(s)/sheet music, reeds, reed soaking container (for oboe), a music stand, neck strap (saxes)

*** Specialties ***
Beginner to advanced students, note reading, phrase shaping, aural skills through "repeat after me" and playing together.

***Lessons Offered***
Oboe
Flute
Clarinet
Tenor Sax
Alto Sax

Thanks again for visiting, I hope to hear from you soon!

About Gina

I have been a singer for over 15 years and have been a vocal coach for over 9. I had 9 years of vocal training, which I have worked to transition into a teaching style of my own. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Theatre and Vocal Performance. I have a good ear for vocal difficulties and a good assortment of solutions.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a fun, laid back teacher, but I expect focus during the lesson. I would expect practice outside of lessons and for my students to be prepared when coming to the session. I do like to laugh and to make my students feel comfortable. My students can expect results with range, clarity, technique among others.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, music stands, speakers for MP3 players, microphones, recording equipment

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Musical Theatre, classical, and pop.

Had my first lesson with Jerry and though we had some technology issues I truly enjoyed his teaching and thoroughness of instruction. I wanted a professional trumpet player and experienced teacher and Jerry is really meeting my expectations. I’m truly looking forward to working with him each week. Also, his follow up after the lesson was outstanding.

About Nikolas

With 10 years of live band experience, 8 years of music composition, and 7 years of teaching guitar, I offer vast expertise and a large musical background for very affordable rates! My lessons are described by former/current students as being laid-back, detail-oriented, and very encouraging. My students range in age from 8 years old to adults in their 30's. You can always learn something new!

Most of my musical experience has entailed Rock, Indie-Rock, Blues, Acoustic, Bossa Nova, and Experimental/Contemporary. If students are looking to expand into a genre which I am not necessarily familiar with, I am always able to examine and learn the material myself in order to pass along to the student.

My students always decide the curriculum and pace which they would like their lessons to held at. I make sure to break the lesson down into simp

le, fundamental bullet points so that students do not find themselves lost or confused. Overall, my combination of friendly attitude and communication skills means that all my students get a lesson they enjoy, remember, and improve with.

Greg
"I have known Marlon for a while now. He is a good guy, a good friend and a good guitar player. I would have to say Marlon has been teaching me how to pl
ay the guitar for about a year now. He’s very good at what he does. I enjoy Heavy Metal. Because of Marlon, I can play it. I would refer him to any teaching job involving the guitar, bass or acoustic."
...
Tessa
"Cameron was one of the best teachers i have ever come into contact with. What struck me most was his patience, understanding and independent thinking. He
was very observant of what worked best for me and he made the teaching program fit my speed and comfortability,while at the same time pushing me out of my comfort zone. Cameron is very thorough and fills his lessons with personal experiences of his own,new ways of thinking, good starting points and things to remember. Feel free to ask him questions about whatever is on your mind when it comes to guitar playing. With Cameron's knowledge, he will leave you with new ways of thinking about guitar, questions answered, and a new understanding. I would strongly suggest sharing the knowledge given to you by Cameron with everyone you know. His lessons are accurate, thorough, and factual. I would recommend him to anyone, especially people who want the best for their money and for their time."
